Jane’s love for photography was inspired by her father but her interest really took off when she received her first camera from her Aunt Marie at age 10.
Jane has always loved animals but her passion for Birds of Prey came when she went to Central Park in New York City to see the famous Red-Tailed Hawk named “Pale Male.”
Jane has displayed her work for the last two years at the West Nyack Library and the Essex County Environmental Center in Roseland, New Jersey. She has also displayed at Dominican College Sullivan Hall, The Center for Spiritual Living in West Orange, New Jersey and at the Finkelstein Memorial Library in Spring Valley. Jane had her work at the Art Café in Nyack, N.Y. during the months of March and April. Jane was recently at the West Nyack Library in May and the New City Library in July. Jane was at the Suffern Library in September and recently was at the Art Cafe in Nyack in October. In December Jane was at the Haverstraw Kings Daughters Public Library. Jane will also be at the Pearl River Library during the month of January. Jane will be at the Rose Memorial Library in Stony Point, NY for the months of February and March. at the Art Cafe in Nyack in May and the Environmental Center in Roseland, N.J. in June.
Jane entered a Defenders of Wildlife contest using one of her favorite picture, her Monarch Butterfly. Even though she did not win, Defenders of Wildlife liked it so much that they used it numerous times on their website.
Jane’s inspiration comes from Wildlife Photographer, Ron Magill, because he has the same outlook on picture taking as she does. Both believe in not altering their pictures in any way which means Photoshop is never used. Jane has been working on her craft by taking a number of adult education classes, a BOCES class and seminars on wildlife and digital photography. She is currently attending Rockland Community College for Black & White Photography. Her love for Wildlife Photography has been building into a passion for a number of years. This passion exploded when she decided to make Wildlife Photography her life’s path.
Jane’s mission is to inspire people to love and respect Wildlife as much as she does. Every animal has a personality. Every animal has a soul. Every animal should be treasured. Every animal has a purpose.
“Until one has loved an animal, part of their soul remains unawakened."
This show is dedicated to her nephew, Kyle James Moynihan.
